Crowdfunding Success Workshop

To Help 270 Creatives and Changemakers Get Their Projects Funded


Join Us At Our Next Crowdfunding Meetup

Recent statistics show that Crowdfunding is estimated to have created approximately 270,000 jobs world wide and injected more than $65 billion into the global economy, proving that this relatively new method of raising capital is definitely here to stay.

When utilized correctly crowdfunding platforms provide the perfect opportunity for entrepreneurs to launch new products, fund innovative ideas and develop a global community in support of their business.

Unfortunately, it isn’t all rainbows and success. According to statistics provided by some of the most well-known crowdfunding platforms in North America, on average only 44% of campaigns succeed in reaching their funding goal.

In this afternoon workshop you will learn:

– The difference between rewards-based crowdfunding, fundraising & equity crowdfunding.
– Why some campaigns fail and others succeed.
– Strategies for planning and launching a successful rewards-based campaign.
– How to use Facebook Ads to build your social media following and promote your campaign.

If you are looking to create a rewards based crowdfunding campaign, want to learn more about the world of crowdfunding or determine if this is the right avenue for your business to raise capital, then you cannot miss this workshop.


Keynote Speaker for First Crowdfunding Success Workshop

The keynote speaker for the first crowdfunding workshop is Daryl Hatton, CEO of Fundrazr. Founded in 2008, Fundrazr was originally created to be a Facebook app for users to crowdfund money over Facebook. Since then, users are able to log in to FundRazr using several other platforms. FundRazr is passionate about providing an alternative funding source for startups, charities, and personal causes with total crowdfunding for over $91 million. Hatton says, “As Director of the National Crowdfunding Association of Canada, he has been involved since the beginning of various crowdfunding platforms and can speak about the differences, as well as benefits for each.

WHAT IS EARTH CHARTER?

Earth Charter is an international declaration of fundamental values and principles considered useful by its supporters for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society in the 21st century. Created by a global consultation process, and endorsed by organizations representing millions of people, the Charter “seeks to inspire in all peoples a sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well-being of the human family, the greater community of life, and future generations.

Earth Charter originated in 1987, by Maurice Strong and Mikhail Gorbachev as members of The Club of Rome, when the United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development called for a new charter to guide the transition to sustainable development. In 1992, the need for a charter was urged by then-Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali at the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit, but the time for such a declaration was not believed to be right. The Rio Declaration became the statement of the achievable consensus at that time. In 1994, Maurice Strong (Chairman of the Earth Summit) and Mikhail Gorbachev, working through organizations they each founded (the Earth Council and Green Cross International respectively), restarted the Earth Charter as a civil society initiative, with the help of the government of the Netherlands.


WHAT IS EARTH CHARTER CITIES?

Driven by the Earth Charter, Earth Charter Cities is a collaborative movement that brings together passionate amateurs, experts, organizations and frameworks from across the world to inspire exponential improvements in principle areas of the Earth Charter and Earth Charter Cities Manifesto. 

The Earth Charter Cities Manifesto is a call to action for all of us. It was developed by Gerben van Straaten of World of Walas to help communities realize the Earth Charter. After an almost 2 year drafting process with key stakeholders of the Earth Charter, the Earth Charter Cities Manifesto was launched in The Hague in 2010. 

Get more information on Gerben van Straaten and the story of the Earth Charter Cities Manifesto.
